The dish looked pretty and tasted okay, but it was difficult to eat. The wontons were tough to cut - something along the lines of phyllo or even a thin sugar cookie - would be a better consistency. If you want to stick with the wontons, I would suggest breaking them up and mixing them with the whipped cream, then layering with the strawberries.
